Anthias Consulting course is awarded recognition by the Royal Society of Chemistry


Anthias Consulting's Complete Gas Chromatography (GC) and GC-MS courses have received approval from the Royal Society of Chemistry for the purposes of continuing professional development.

The qualification further strengthens Anthias Consulting's position as a premier provider of Gas Chromatography courses, from beginner training to the Complete GC & GC-MS five-day course.

In order for a course to be recognised under the CPD, it must adhere to rigorous quality standards, provide relevant course content that fulfills a professional or vocational need.  The qualification is reserved for experienced tutors and the RSC expects these tutors to consistently collect feedback from attendees in order to continue improving the courses.

Diane Turner, founder of Anthias Consulting says, "Since the inception of the training courses, we strive to continuously improve the quality of the knowledge attendees take back to their labs and offices.  It's an honour to receive this recognition."

Following the Complete GC & GC-MS course a First year PhD student in Atmospheric Chemistry left feedback: "A very thorough and complete GC course covering both GC theory and practical applications.  I've learned a lot from this course, especially little golden nuggets of info; selective exclusion, for example, which I doubt I would have picked up anywhere else."

Training courses are provided for every level of experience, from 1-day introductions for absolute beginners to Gas Chromatography to 2-day clinics in GC & GC-MS where theory is put into practice to optimise methods, troubleshoot & maintain instruments and look at advanced techniques.

The full range of courses include: Absolute Basics of GC & GC-MS, Practical Essentials of GC & GC-MS, The GC & GC-MS Clinic, The Complete GC & GC-MS, individual days from the Practical Essentials and Clinic courses and Hands On GCxGC.
